What are the characteristic features of a true-breeding line?
A true breeding line is one that, having undergone continuous self-pollination, shows the stable trait inheritance and expression for several generations. It increases homozygosity of the organism. This also helps to eliminate the harmful recessive genes through deletion. Thus promoting accumulation of superior genes.
